> What do the rest of you think about this “educational” aspect of the Azimuth Project?

My impression is that we are better placed to teach scientifically literate people. Does anyone here have experience teaching kids?

On the other hand 'things about probability and stochastics that every citizen should know' will include some things that many non-mathematical scientists don't know, or don't understand well. I think a lot of non-mathematical scientists get a course in statistics which rushes through probability theory, and often leaves them able to calculate p-levels (or if they're lucky Bayes factors) but not really understand what they are doing or or why. I reckon the first basic probability concept that generally well-educated people usually trip over is conditional probability. But is that fixing that *our* problem?
